The logic board had a melt down. The phone would not reload a recovery or a rom to the phone
I used the ifixit guide for repairing the evo and could not be happier with the results. It took no longer than an hour to teardown two evo's and replace the logic board. Replacing the worn out kickstand was an added bonus. Plus I now have an extra charger and battery too. I am all smiles....
Just follow the instructions. Be careful with the tabs holding the ribbon
cables. They are delicate.
